For some odd reason, Walmart released the DVD the week before Amazon did, so I'm watching the DVD right now! The key thing to know about this DVD release features an `uncut' version of the hour-long pilot episode `Rise of the Turtles' (let's see a Season Box Set do that!), along with five additional episodes from the first season. Before the DVD's release, I only saw two of the episodes that are featured on it "New Friend, Old Enemy" and " I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman", all the others I saw were later episodes. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Trailer If you chose to wait for a Season set, you might get the pilot in two half-episodes, but this DVD release has it `uncut'. So, it might be worth it, it depends on your own opinions.
I'm a big fan of Greg Cipes, and of course Rob Paulsen played our beloved Raphael in the original series. However, I think that the current cast could not possibly be any better. I loved the original cast, of course, but something about this current cast feels more close to the comics. I also think that Rob's voice fits better with Donatello.
This series, while indulging in small amounts of silliness, plays them out as characters instead of caricatures. Each one has his or her light and dark sides. I also enjoy seeing April getting to learn to be a ninja like she did in the comics instead of a helpless reporter. It's also nice to see her as a teenager in this series. It just adds a new dynamic to the story.
It also doesn't hurt that there are a lot of little references to the old series, to the comics, and subtle shout-outs to the fans of the classic versions. I think that if you approach this new series with an open mind and a love of all things TMNT, you will fall in love just as I have.
Besides, fans of TMNT should be excited about introducing a whole new generation to the characters we know and love.

|agh! again no blu-ray!||
Unfortunately, because the target audience are only kids, who typically don't have Blu-Ray players. Yes, parents buy them and either 1) watch them with their kids or 2) watch them themselves, but regardless, the mentality of the distribution company is to put them out on DVD for kids, with DVD...
